The gentleman sitting loves the feel of the weighted bags inside the socks. He has learned to pick up the socks to insert into a large container and also to stand up and bring each one into a container in the middle of the room during a sensory motor group. This is a perfect activity for someone who enjoys deep pressure but does not tolerate wearing a weighted vest or blanket. He typically sits with arms folded against his chest avoiding hand use.
I used the same socks with a different individual by placing them in the hallway, so that he could walk, pick each up to insert into a shopping back. So he received sensory input from moving high/low as well as picking up the weighted socks. He seemed to enjoy this a lot. He avoids using hands together so placing each in the bag worked on that skill.
I noticed that this same person used only one hand when putting the rope rings on the stack shown below. But he had better motor control and used both hands when placing the adapted heavy sock ring over the stack.
